Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Several critical issues stand in the development path of a magnetized target fusion scheme to a working reactor. Important ones are the limit imposed by liner dwell time, and the requirement for symmetry in high convergences. The usual compression schemes tend to require a lot of energy and large chambers. During Phase I we completed computation...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Steady state magnetic fusion concepts must overcome a number of difficulties: (1) maintaining stability and sustaining the current in steady state; (2) continuous heat flux on the first wall; and (3) heating of the plasma to thermonuclear conditions. Although solutions have been suggested for each of these problems ¿ e.g., the steady-state pr...

Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

In fusion research, several critical issues stand in the development path from a spheromak to a reactor. An important one is the production of strong magnetic fields by use of a low current source. This project will develop a new means for generating strong magnetic fields from a low current source, namely, the repetitive injection of helicity...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Steady state magnetic fusion concepts suffer the following problems: maintaining stability and current sustainment in steady state; continuous heat flux on the first wall; and heating the plasma to thermonuclear conditions. The Inductive Plasmoid Accelerator (IPA), funded by the DOE and currently under construction, seeks to address each of th...
